2021 was undoubtedly a jam-packed year for Marvel Studios. Not only were there four films on the slate, but the Marvel Cinematic Universe also expanded exponentially by introducing Disney+ exclusive television shows as well, capping off the year with five incredible new series when all was said and done.
Looking to 2022, fans eagerly waited for news during Marvel’s Disney+ Day special last November. While several teases were shown for what’s to come this year, the only show that received a hint of a release date was Ms. Marvel, which will land on the streaming service this summer. Considering that Hawkeye ended in December and Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness won’t arrive until May, this would be quite a drought for audiences after all that the previous year had to offer.
However, fret not, Marvel fans … “the one you see coming” will be here sooner than we thought. The official trailer for Moon Knight was released tonight, along with some exciting news — the series will premiere on Disney+ on March 30! The first poster for the show has also been revealed.
Moon Knight follows Steven Grant (Oscar Isaac), a mild-mannered gift-shop employee who becomes plagued with blackouts and memories of another life. Steven discovers he has dissociative identity disorder and shares a body with mercenary Marc Spector. As Steven/Marc’s enemies converge upon them, they must navigate their complex identities while thrust into a deadly mystery among the powerful gods of Egypt.
Ethan Hawke and May Calamawy also star.
Watch the trailer below.
The series is directed by Mohamed Diab and the team of Justin Benson & Aaron Moorhead. Jeremy Slater is the head writer, and Kevin Feige, Louis D’Esposito, Victoria Alonso, Brad Winderbaum, Mohamed Diab, Jeremy Slater and Oscar Isaac are the executive producers.
The character of Moon Knight was created by writer Doug Moench and artist Don Perlin, making his first appearance in Werewolf by Night issue #32 in 1975.
